Liposuction (Lipoplasty) is a surgical procedure which improves your body shape. A tube and vacuum device are used. There are different techniques that can be used for this plastic surgery procedure, including tumescent technique and the ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty. Liposuction can be performed in many places on the body. The most common are abdomen liposuction, buttocks liposuction, hips and thighs liposuction, and upper arms liposuction. These are just a few of the common places but you should consult with Dr. Waldman to find out what is best for you.
Liposuction is most successful in people with good skin tone who are near normal weight but have localized fatty deposits. It is not a treatment for obesity. It is intended to produce a more flattering figure by improving contours and proportions. The procedure involves multiple small incisions through which a cannula or hollow tube is inserted. This tube is used to break up and remove the fat beneath the skin. Several areas can be suctioned at one operative setting although Dr. Waldman may limit the amount that can be removed safely at one time.
